The Saints Friday injury report has some fans riled up since Drew Brees’ name seemed to appear on it out of nowhere. The quarterback is listed with a right elbow injury that he said occurred on the final offensive drive against San Francisco.

But, no need to stress. Brees is listed as FULL, which means he has not been limited in any way. Why even put him on the injury report then? Likely because he probably got some treatment and that needs to be disclosed per league rules.

Brees could break another one of Peyton Manning’s records on Monday Night Football…again.  Last season he took over as the NFL’s career passing yards leader against the Washington Redskins in week 5.  Now, in week 15 of this season he could be crowned the touchdown king against Manning’s old team the Indianapolis Colts. Brees has 537 TD passes and needs 3 against Indy to make another memorable Monday night moment in the Mercedes Benz Superdome.
